This is my last post at after nearly five years of blogging. I’m moving on to new professional challenges.

The National Association of Manufacturers has been a great place to work, and not only because of the latitude the NAM’s leaders gave me in writing about manufacturing, economic and policy issues. The issues we promote seek to create a more stronger manufacturing sector and more prosperous, free United States, and I’ve been privileged to help in whatever modest way I can. The people at the NAM are top-notch advocates and colleagues.

Shopfloor continues with many voices, and I wish them all the best.

So, in the words of Roy Rogers ….


P.S. OK, I’ll admit it. I’m more a Yardbirds kind of guy.
